This is HSPA+ 21, correct?
Run a test on Speedtest and post the results.
yes AT&T and T-mobile market HSPA+ as 4G.
Yes, LTE hasn't been deployed yet to NYC.
Why does his icon read 4G? I thought t mobiles only could say it was 3G!
There is 3G, 4G and LTE
Verizon & Sprint have 3G and LTE.
AT&T & Tmobile have 3G, but most of it is now sped up and is dubbed, 4G. And they also have LTE too.
I know that I'm askingx, because he's on t mobile and an iPhone why does his Indictator say 4g mine only says 3G and I have a iphone 5?
Tmobile released a carrier update for iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 running on their HSPA+ network to show the 4G icon now instead of 3G.
It hasn't been released yet actually (maybe Monday). But some jailbroken users are using a custom carrier bundle so it is possible to change it with that.
I thought 4G is LTE for T-Mobile? I'm confused??
Unless his phone is JB, he can download a tweak that will make EDGE and 3G signals show as 4G but if he didn't download the tweak then he should be getting LTE signal.
T-Mobile officially calls LTE, "4G LTE". My guess is the official carrier update will make HSPA+ "4G".
Tmobile and AT&T call HSPA+ 4G and they call LTE 4G LTE.
on LTE, it will show us LTE (not as 4G).
Thanks dude haha
They are probably waiting for the merger to go through.
No. There have already been sightings of LTE in NY. It is currently in testing phase meaning it will be lit up with the next set of LTE cities which should be in the next month or two.
they won't need to deploy LTE that is already covered by metro pcs.
They are already deploying LTE in NYC without MetroPCS. It would be the end of next year before they can use their spectrum.
Could be 42. Pretty sure TMobile has deployed DC-HSPA+ performing up to 42mbps in some markets, and NYC seems like it would be a major one. However; NYC is fairly crowded though.
3G, HSPA: rated 7.2 mbps
4G, HSPA+/DC-HSPA+: rated 14-42mbps
LTE, 50-100...+? mbps
Tmobile claims they will start the day the deal is signed and finalized.
They said that but in reality from what I am hearing, the conversion of their LTE will take some time. There is no magical switch that that turns on LTE to all T-mobile customers from Metro's existing LTE.
In most markets they just need to grab the spectrum.
Didn't they release the carrier update on Friday like they said they would?
